It’s been a couple of weeks since I did an update post for Working the Asset.
Since the last update, I’ve blasted through Pass #4, the aim of which is to deepen audience delight with genre sequences, dramatic irony, and making sure that the story escalates well.
I’m now working on Pass #5. This pass takes care of the Fou Rs or as H. R. D’Costa (the creator of this outlining method) calls them The Four Workhorses. The four Rs are Realism, Relevance, Repetition, and Rhythm.
For the past few days I’ve been working through my stack of index cards—the continuously growing stack—looking for, and creating, setups and payoffs. And, tomorrow sees me tackling the fun/teeth-drying task of wrangling my subplots into shape.
Thanks for reading, and for your support 😍
As always, stay safe and stay awesome!

I’m fascinated by your process, Susan. Very much looking forward to the final outcome!
Thanks, Chris. This is the first time I’ve used this method. It’s a lot of work up front, but I’m constantly seeing how invaluable it’s going to be in the long run.
I’m constantly amazed at how rapidly you’re progressing through the steps 👏
Thank you, Sweetie! 😍🥰😘
